  1. After reading this blog makes me want to do mission work all the more! We never know eho God will put in our life
    They could come from any and all religions but the greatest gift of all is still love.

  2. I have been hearing wonderful things about this book. Anxious to read it and “meet” a new author. I knew someone who I thought was a good Christian and found that this person was not who I thought them to be. Prayed that they would find their way back to truth and honesty. Thank you.

  3. Brenda, Thanks so much for being my guest. I’ll announce the winner on Monday!

  4. I agree. I am human and have disappointed other Christians I’m sure. That makes me forgive others easier. We all make mistakes.

  5. Aww, you’re kind & thoughtful Nancy. We had a good time at your library with an intrigued and attentive audience. Love it when people want to expand their Amish knowledge.

  6. Would love to read your book. It might help me understand what my husband went thru when he left his Old Order Amish family .

  7. Oh that’d be great Sarah. I like meeting readers. But you don’t have to wait ’til you come to Ohio. You can get a signed copy of my book by sending $17 to me at: PO Box 1302, Mount Vernon, OH 43050.

  8. Would realy like to read this book.After reading so much about the amish there world isnt as perfect as people portray them to be seems like to me there wirld is just like our except the way they dress.transpirtation.daily luvibg.But they still have the problems that we all do on a daily bases ours is just open and u only hear about there problems when they come out in the ones that have left the amish culture.I do realize not every family is like this.

  9. Tough question. I could only say that as other christians have dissapointed me I’ve learned that no one can live a perfect christian life, we will dissapoint others, I have dissapointed others, we cannot let things that people do or say cause us to fumble. We are all christians saved by grace.

  10. Our library invited Brenda as a speaker last fall and she shared her story. The people who attended were very interested in her story, as the Amish fiction is very popular here, and they wanted to learn more. She has an insight into the culture not many have. She is a very good speaker and I highly recommend her.

  11. You have a heart of gold. I’m reading the book on kindle. I would love to have a signed copy. Next time we come to OhioI hope to come see you and buy one.

  12. Congratulations on your book release Brenda! I have enjoyed reading bits a pieces on your blog and posts to Amish Q & A, I feel like I know some of your adopted children now myself. Looking forward to reading your book!

  13. I can relate Sunnie. Prayer keeps me grounded when meeting, talking, or dealing with a Christian who is a stumbling block. Thanks for reading and leaving your comment.
    Feel free to leave me a question about the Amish, too.

  14. Actually yes, however, I don’t really know that I dealt with it in a particular way. I prayed about it a lot, however.
